This course will examine the evolution of the economies of Southeast Asia countries from pre-colonial days to the present. Each of the ten countries of Southeast Asia will be examined in turn. Topics to be covered will include: patterns of economic growth, structural change and income distribution; foreign trade, aid, dept and investment; regional economic cooperation; domestic macroeconomic management and development planning; industrialization; the export of primary commodities, manufacturers and services; the economic roles of the state, foreign and local capital, ethnic minorities and women; the special problems of socialist economic development; and the influence of social, cultural and political factors on economic development. This is a lecture course with some time for class discussion. It is open to graduate students and upper-level undergraduates with adequate background, by permission of the instructor. An elementary knowledge of economics is presumed; a background in Southeast Asia is desirable but not necessary. Readings will be provided in a course-pack. The course will meet once a week, on Thursdays 2-5 p.m. There may be on occasional guest lectures. Grading will be based on a midterm and a final exam. (Lim)
